With MC Matt Reed at the helm, you know you're in for a cracking night. The gin guzzling, Jesus lookalike has the most infectious giggle in the business and is a blooming genius at getting the audience involved.
The Kagools are a multi award-winning physical comedy duo. Since their first full-length show in 2014, they’ve quickly gained fans far and wide. Their unique brand of spontaneous, anarchic buffoonery propels silent comedy into the 21st Century.
An equally sought-after headline act both at home and overseas, their critically acclaimed shows have toured extensively, with recent international appearances including Australia, Norway, the Netherlands, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia and South Korea.

Phil Chapman began performing comedy in 2006 at a local Chinese restaurant, he was asked to leave soon into the performance, but such was the reaction of the crowd – a rapturous round of applause (in hindsight, this may have been more for the management although no one can really confirm anything) – he decided to pursue a career via more conventional means.
Phil’s playful brand of comedy is unique and infectious. With a set that blends anecdotes and observations with a healthy dose of banter, his happy-go-lucky approach and mischievous on-stage persona, delights audiences far and wide.
Our comedian in the middle Matt Duwell is an observational, socio-political, topical comedian who is more fun than he sounds!

Phil began performing comedy in 2006 at a local Chinese restaurant, he was asked to leave soon into the performance, but such was the reaction of the crowd - a rapturous round of applause (in hindsight, this may have been more for the management although no one can really confirm anything) - he decided to pursue a career via more conventional means. He then found a local comedy venue running beginners nights, and after his first performance, was asked to perform in the final of the new act competition, where he placed second. He continued performing around the North of England, where he placed second in four more competitions, including the legendary Beat the Frog World Series. Given his consistency, and undeterred by his near brushes with success, he decided to carry on performing and has now established himself as a regular in many clubs around the country, and he is renowned for his ability to win over any audience. From his carefully crafted gags, to his engaging anecdotes, his material and stage presence ensure he is a big hit wherever he's playing, and he always leaves.

'Matt Duwell is a comedian originally from Brighton who now lives in East London. His comedy involves cheerfully dark and very personal observational comedy, with hints of the surreal, as he comments on a world he doesn't really understand' (www.opencomedy.com).
